Just Got Some New Gears

As an early christmas present I got 3.73 gears. I have been looking in different places to find a how-to but I cant find them anywhere. Does anyone know where I can get one? Or does anyone know how to do it?

I wouldn't do a gear install yourself, if you don't do it perfect you get gear whine and excessive wear

Definately and you'll need a friction modifier and all that special stuff. I would just take it somewhere and if they screw it up, then they'll have to fix the problem, where as if you screw something up, that's more money out of your pocket.

Yea i have been looking everywhere and a couple of my friends bought me some. What type of shop would install them? Does a ford dealer do that? What besides a friction modifer. I know its hard but i want to try anyways. My friends owns a shop and we have the tools i believe but no instructions.

try some people on your local car board if you have one. I had a guy off my local board install mine at his house for 250. 2 years later still perfect.

You need to do the Tlok the same time you do the gears because it all has to come apart anyway, most shop will not charge more and if they do they are trying to rip you off.
